Saaz Pale Ale


Recommended Posts

Hello, I'm new to home brewing, with this being my third brew (my wheat beer is going down great guns).


Brewing a K+B Coopers APA with a few changes to use up leftovers


1 x Coopers APA tin

1.1kg Coopers LDME

200g Dex

100g Maltodextrin

15g Saaz @ 60min

Dry hopped 25g of Saaz @ 5 days at 18c

Added one pack of old Coopers yeast 1 min before flame out, made up a starter for another and sprinkled a third over the top (experimenting).

Extra 5 days in FV at 18c

Dropped to 1c for 7 days


Have bottled this the day after Boxing Day. It is tasting quite good. I was a little apprehensive about using the Saaz and the prospect of it developing a grassy taste, but so far so good. It seems like it will be a very easy to drink beer. I will brew another batch today, but use cascade instead. Will this taste as good?

Hey Stu

Welcome to the Guild.

It sounds like your brewing career is going great guns, you are in the right place to move from Kit & Kilo to Kits & Bits.

As for your next brew I personally would be looking to cut the 1st addittion of Cascade to around the 20 minute mark. This will ensure you get a balance between the Citrus flavour and some bitterness from the boil. But then I rarley boil for longer than 20 mins when using a hopped can as a base.
